Abstract
There are a group of large and medium-scale Meso-Cenozoic petroliferous bas ins along both sides of the Tanlu fault or within the fault zone, e.g., the Songliao basin, the Bohai Bay basin and the Subei-Yellow Sea basin. As sho wn by studies of the structural types, sedimentary formations, volcanic act ivities, tectonic evolution as well as the time-space relationship between the Tanlu fault zone and the basins, the formation and distribution of the basins are controlled by the movement of the Tanlu fault. This paper presen ts an analysis of the tectono-geometric, kinematic and geodynamic features of the basins on the basis of integrated geological-geophysical data, and a n exploration into the internal relations between the fault and the basins as well as the formation mechanism and geodynamic processes of the basins.
